Food intolerances or allergies often lead to chronic inflammatory conditions responsible for many diseases. Most immune cells are located in the gastrointestinal tract and consuming intolerable foods can mislead them, thus weaking the immune system and increasing susceptions to serious illness. Therefore, it is important to take care of the correct diet and to exclude or limit all harmful factors in it.

Many food hypersensitivity is genetically determined and an appropriate study allows identification of individual predispositions of the organism in question to a specific disorder. By knowing the results of such a study, you can change your lifestyle accordingly and minimize or eliminate the risk of symptoms altogether.

Peanut allergy

An allergy to nuts, including peanuts, is one of the more common food allergies. This is a type of intolerance that is revealing itself in the early years of life.

What are the symptoms of allergy?

Symptoms appear almost immediately after ingestion of the allergen and are very diverse. They depend mainly on the personal circumstances of the sick person. The most common symptoms include cutaneous hives, rashes, redness, itching. There are also frequent less specific symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal pain as well as swelling of the lips, tongue or airways, asthma attacks and changes from the nervous system, which may manifest as an occurrence of impaired consciousness and Behavior. It is worth noting that the intake of peanuts by allergy can lead to anaphylactic shock, which is a life threatening.

What genes are analysed in the study and what do they influence?

Changes in the HLA-DRA gene play a role in hereditary peanuts. It is responsible for coding proteins that help the human immune systems distinguish between "own" and "alien" cells. Studies have shown that changes in the HLA-DRA gene may be associated with increased susceptisation to peanut allergy, especially for people coming from Europe. In the case of undesirable variants, the protein treats the nuts as a dangerous factor for the body and starts fighting with them. Depending on the variant of the gene, the risk of peanut intolerance can increase even three times.

Who is recommended to perform the test?

Please note that this type of allergy can occur in everyone. It is worth verifying your health and checking if you have a mutation that is responsible for this food hypersensitivity.

Can I donate this study to someone?'

You can transfer/donate selected studies to another person. You just need to enter the box names for each of the selected products when completing your order after entering your shipping address. By giving different names of boxes (e.g. 1-my, 2-for-mum) You can create test kits for both yourself and the people you want to donate GeneMe study to.

It is also worth remembering that:

Each successive test within one SWAT (i.e. one box) is awarded for 50% of the price.
We send your entire order to one of the specified addresses to send the boxes in different places to separate orders.
